Without New Life Day Center, the homeless would have limited or no shelter options during the daytime hours. This means no breakfast, no lockers, and no connection to resources within the city of Lexington. Every day, at least 150 homeless would be on the streets of Lexington during the daytime hours. Because of our community partners, and individuals like you, we are changing lives.
Join us in the effort to change the landscape of the homeless population in our city. We are grateful for every type of involvement and each donation we receive. Whether you are a corporation with services or in-kind donations or an individual who wants to serve with their time and talents, we welcome you to partner with us in our mission.
This is a list of volunteer roles and positions we have utilized, past and present. If you see a need not on this list that you would like to fill, please speak with us and we can customize your role.

The New Life Day Center is able to provide so many needed supplies and services to our clients directly due to the generosity of individuals, companies, organizations, churches, and community groups who conduct supply drives to gather our most-used items. If you would like to conduct a supply drive to benefit our clients, please refer to the list of in-kind donations listed on the “Our Partners” tab. Additionally, we have created Amazon and Target wish-lists if you would like to conduct a virtual supply drive.
We are always in need of helping hands. We are looking for volunteers who can participate in serving breakfast in our kitchen, checking in guests at our check-in booth, registering new guests in our registration office, driving our daily free transportation van, and volunteers as a group (typically on Saturdays.)
We are always in need of in-kind donations. If you are so gracious to help, travel size toiletries, winter gloves and hats, and socks are our biggest needs.
These items can be hand delivered between:
8:00am-2:00pm Monday – Friday
